Some criticisms have been there about the relationship between Dorinda and John, which Dorinda herself has addressed.

In an interview with in 2016, when she was asked as to how she deals with her friends who do not like John, she said,

"We don't, I think I really managed to draw some very strong lines in the sand this year."

She also added,

"Listen, it's a season of questioning again and giving us our two cents, but we don't really care about it. We love each other,"

She concluded as,

 "The truth of the matter is, we don't need to say anything because we've been together for four years. Four years! As we know from our castmates, some of their relationships and marriages haven't lasted for four years. So I think that it's fair to say the longevity of our relationship speaks for itself."
